Straighten Your Smile for the New Year! Are You a Candidate for Invisalign?

Do you hide your smile because you’re embarrassed by your crooked teeth? Are you searching for a quick way to straighten your smile? Then it may be time to consider Invisalign®. It might sound too good to be true, but the innovative clear aligners can fix almost any smile flaw, and they work a lot faster than traditional braces.

Our dental specialists at Santa Clarita Advanced Dentistry in Valencia, California, have helped many patients get the smile they’ve been dreaming of with Invisalign. We don’t want you to spend another year hiding your smile imperfections when you may be the perfect candidate for Invisalign. 

The magic of Invisalign

If you’re at all familiar with the high visibility of traditional braces, you may find it hard to believe that clear, plastic aligners can give you the perfect smile without anyone even noticing. But that’s the magic of Invisalign. 

The innovative teeth-straightening system uses a special thermoplastic called SmartTrack® to push your teeth into a straighter position. The thermoplastic conforms to your teeth and applies a gentle and constant force to move your teeth quickly. The clear aligners also hug your teeth, which makes them very comfortable and nearly invisible.

On top of that, your Invisalign treatment is designed specifically for you. When you come in for your Invisalign consultation, we use a specialized computer program that creates a digital map of how we plan on moving your teeth, which also lets you see your new smile before we even get started. We use the digital map to create your personal set of clear aligners. 

For the best results, we may have you wear each set of aligners for 1-2 weeks, for up to 22 hours a day. You can take your aligners out to eat and brush your teeth.

Are you a candidate?

Only we can determine if you’re a good candidate for Invisalign during your consultation. That being said, we use the innovative teeth-straightening system to address many smile concerns, including:

We can even use the clear aligners to simply give you a straighter smile. Invisalign can help almost any teen or adult who simply wants a better-looking smile. 

New smile before the next New Year

Though treatment time varies depending on the complexity of your case, most of our patients can have a straighter smile within 12-18 months of starting treatment. By comparison, traditional braces can take up to three years to move your teeth into a more perfect position.

Invisalign not only gives you a more aesthetically pleasing smile, but the system also improves your oral health. Your crooked and misaligned teeth increase your risk of cavities, gum disease, and tooth loss. It also alters your bite and may place too much pressure on certain teeth, making them more vulnerable to wear-and-tear, as well as cracking.


To boost your self-confidence and improve your oral health, straighten your smile for the New Year with Invisalign.
